Before I get to the next batch of my favorite Achewoods, allow me to promote the new show I'm in! It's called The Truth About Blaydes. It's little-known but well-written play by A.A. Milne (of Winnie the Pooh fame; I assure you no stuffed animals will be appearing in this production). It's a drawing room comedy set in the 1920's, and it's actually very funny. You should come see it! It's a no-budget fundraiser for the Footlight Club, running one weekend only: August 15, 16, 17. http://www.footlight.org/index.shtml (We're not on the web page yet, but will be soon, and there's no need to buy your tix in advance. I think it's $7, or free for members).
I'm playing Isobel, the long-suffering daughter of one of Britain's pre-eminent 19th Century poets. The play is directed by Dan Bourque (who directed The Wind in the Willows). Brad Reed is playing my unscrupulous brother-in-law, William; Rob Guptill is playing my spoiled nephew, Oliver; and Kristopher Moreau is playing Royce, the long-lost love of my life. Carol Pyper has a walk-on role as one of our servants.
